Request - Playback step scenes in a random order [done]

Postby JacobJB » 06 May 2019, 14:07

Hi There,

I hope that you are able to add a way to playback step based scenes in a random order. At the moment when I play a scene in the live editor it will play from the first step to the last step. I would like the option to be able to play the scene randomly so when the button gets pressed it goes step 1, 7, 2, 4, 6, 8, 5, 3 (in a random order) for example, rather than 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8.

The main reason I would like this feature added is because I am trying to achieve a randomised sound to light state. I have come over from FreeStyler and it has a feature built in where it will randomly select a colour, gobo and movement to sound. I used this all the time and then I would "override" the lights with different colours, gobos, movements etc... for drops in songs or if a song is slow and requires a simple colour and slow movement. The Lighting Controller software is so much better then FreeStyler but is lacking a way to randomly make the lights go to the music. As a mobile DJ who can't focus on operating lights all night (as I'm meant to be Djing) I really need a way of making steps go in a randomised order and then making that button go to the beat of Virtual DJ. I really hope you are able to add this feature as it is essential for me and I believe that many other people will find randomised steps a useful feature.

Thanks,
Jacob

Just add an arrow box below the "Total Time" in scenes where you can set "Play Random"

Done in this fix: http://download.thelightingcontroller.c ... _06_04.zip
There is an option "Random play" in the popup menu of the button in Live.

Please try it and let us know the result.
